For us, that’s hot. I don’t care what other states or areas consider hot. That’s hot for here! Considering last summer, we barely hit the 90s, with very little humidity? It’s HOT.
I’m so sick and tired of people going “but it’s hotter here”. Seriously? What the hell does it matter? I’m not there. I’m HERE. You’re THERE.
And looking at the symptoms for “heat” problems. Cramps. Yeah, had those yesterday. Definitely helped when I drank water. Heat and I have never mixed well. There’s a reason I was born during SNOW and not during a heat wave, 😆
